One That Got Away: “The Last Song” Book Jacket

I don’t normally get calls for mass-market titles, so it was a bit of a disappointment when this cover for best-selling author, Nicholas Sparks, didn't work out. Well, apparently they are still using the torn-edged paper panel with the faded music for the title type, so I guess it is not a total loss. The Last Song (the title may change) is the story of a young woman who falls in love for the first time while spending the summer with her estranged, (secretly) dying father, who lives on the North Carolina shore. No explicit imagery for the cover, just something beautiful and beachy. I am told the author liked these comps, but felt they were not quite consistent with the cleaner look normally associated with his titles. Hard to argue with that.
